People's relationship with the forest is the subject of Per Enoksson's installation outside Bildmuseet. This work brings together his interest in art and design and comprises a structure of wood and textile with elements of sound and lighting. The Forest in Me reflects a longing for a simpler life closer to nature where the everyday choices we make are reduced to those absolutely necessary. The din of the city ends at an illuminated sign and a footbridge leads us deeper into the forest.
